-- >> senator feinstein zsh if you could please expedite the removal. >>> we have michael isakoff, and the correspondent who obtained the white page memo, jim warren, chicago editor of the daily beast and newsweek and karen finney and john braybender. michael, i want to start with you because it was your reporting that started all of this for the american people to get to learn more about how the administration feels it is legal in the choices made for drone strikes. one thing politico is reporting in the article that they have on this and, of course, the two hearings we were watching yesterday, one being leon panetta on benghazi and the other one with john brennan in the afternoon, it says, senators were looking for a pinata, for hours, brennan was battered by senators even though many of the complaints had little or nothing to do with him. what did we learn? what did we walk away with? >> actually, very little. although i think there was a lot of expectations that we were going to get more transparency, particularly because president obama had just the night before said senators
it to the first contest. few others contemplated running. she never took any real steps to run. diane feinstein dropped hints at a future white house bid on her mind in the late 1980s only to then lose the governors race to pete wilson in 1990. instead of running for the top job in 1992, feinstein was left to settle for a senate seat, a seat she has been happy to keep since then. and that is really it as far as female prospects for the democratic prospect. until 2008 when hillary clinton won 18 million votes and a bunch of primaries and caucuses. where she lost to a black man who went on to win the white house and defeated a republican ticket that included a woman. excuse me. it included a woman. in the wake of all of that, the notion that the terms presidential prospect in white guy went happened in hand to feel antiquated. the clear front runner for the democratic ticket is hillary. she has the potential to clear out the race. many would be candidates would think twice if clinton was in the race. if she passes on it, it wouldn't mean a return to all male fields. kirst kirsten gillibran and am
away all three. >>chris: not taking away shotguns. >>guest: have you looked at the feinstein bill? that is what it does. they will turn the universal, i think, check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people and they do not want that. that is the last thing they want. >>chris: you take something that is here and you say dill go all the way over there, there is no indication. i can understand you saying that is a threat but nothing the administration says indicate they will have a universal registry. >>guest: and obama was not a tax until they needed it to be a tax. i don't think you can trust these people. feinstein has said, they will go door-to-door and pick them up. can i talk about what would work? >>chris: a couple questions and we will get to it. the murder, today, one of the things that concerns people, each day we talk about a shooting, oftentimes mass shootings, day after day after day, and the frustration is, you don't think that answering or limiting guns has anything to do with it. i understand there are some things you think do work and we wil
was it they were willing to talk to pat roberts or me or dianne feinstein, but not anybody else until we literally bludgeoned them into agreeing to include everybody? like carl levins, not trustworthy? it's amazing, and i pursue dianne feinstein's point about staff. when you go and you have under the previous administration, a briefing with the president, the vice president, the head of the cia and others, you're not allowing -- i can remember driving with pat roberts when he was chairman and i was vice chairman, we were not allowed to talk to each other driving up and driving back. we were not allowed to do that. of staff is part of nothing. you have to understand that you're surrounded by people who work with you and fill you in. people who are experts. we are too. but they have to be part of this. they got fo to be part of when e olc comes to them also. i strongly support the chairman's view on that. now, in the enhanced interrogation techniques, a handful of senior cia officials who were personally invested and are personally invested, with the cia detention and interrogation program, largely
. senator feinstein was obviously working behind the scenes. and so finally last night around 6:30, 7:00 last night, the white house relented and the president called wyden. i know you guys are going to talk to wyden later. but this is a very big deal because now the drone policy is going to be central to this confirmation hearing today. >> you know, yesterday pete wehner wrote this. and he's quoting barack obama from may 29th, 2009, the famous speech at the national archives. where he says, let me be clear. we are at war with al qaeda, but we need to update our institutions and do so with an abiding confidence in the rule of law and due process. in checks and balances and accountability for reasons i will explain, the decisions were made over the last eight years during the bush years established an ad hoc legal approach for fighting terrorism that was neither effective nor sustainable. a framework that failed to rely on our legal traditions and time-tested institutions and that failed to use our values as a compass. those words, steve, whether you agree with this drone program or no
that allows us when it's brought to the floor to start offering amendments. if dianne feinstein by the time through the judiciary committee, if she doesn't have her assault weapons, at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> oh, i don't know. i, frankly -- and she knows i haven't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. i think that we need to take a look at federal trafficking. i think that everyone acknowledges we should do something with background checks. >> universal background checks. >> yeah, we need to increase that. i'm still a supportor of the second amendment but -- >> how about restrictions on high-capacity magazines for am m munition? >> i think we definitely have to look at it. >> look or vote for it? >> let's see what it is. let's see what it is. you know, i know there are restrictions people had forever as to how many bullets you can have in a weapon, for example, if you want to hunt waterfowl you have to plug that to only shoot three times in a
you look at the feinstein bill, he is supporting? that is exactly what it does. i mean, i think what they'll do is turn the universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people and law-abiding people don't want that. i mean, my -- >> absolutely do not -- forgive me, sir, you take something that is here, and you say it will go all the way over there. there is no indication, i mean, i can understand you are saying, that is a threat but there is nothing anyone in the administration has said that indicates they are going to have a universal registry. >> and obamacare wasn't a tax until they needed it to be a tax. >> chris: the supreme court decided that. >> you cannot trust these people. my god, dianne feinstein, said, if i could go door-to-door and pick 'em all up, i would do it. can i tell you what i think will work -- >> i'll ask you a couple of questions, the murder today, one of the things that concerns people, it seems every day we talk about a shooting. oftentimes, mass shooting. >> right. >> chris: day after day after day and the frustration is you d
leahy, i want a bill to come out of the committee. if dianne feinstein by the time it's through the judiciary committee, if she doesn't have her assault weapons, at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> oh,i don't know. frankly, and she knows, i haven't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense. but i'll take a look at it. >> mayor, is senator reid doing enough to move this legislation? >> i believe he should read the amendment and listen to a former mayor, dianne feinstein, who stuck her finger in a bullet hole at a scene of a crime. that's what we see as mayors. in washington assault ban weapon, it's a political issue. here is how it sounds to me. my daughter will be teaching school next year. if somebody is in the horrible situation of shooting in that classroom, and they're forced to reload the gun, that may be my daughter's life, that may be your child's life. force people to reload. my god, if we can't do that, it's horrible enough about what is happening out here. stop
last month by senator dianne feinstein, and that you heard mentioned again today by the president. now, that's not necessarily a done deal. that's not necessarily final. if that bill reaches the senate, the senate floor without a ban on assault weapons included, it is possible lawmakers could then amend the bill on the senate floor to include the ban. but they also might not. sam stein at "huffington post" reported today that the assault weapons ban might be strategically sacrificed in order for the rest of the president's plan to go through. sam stein reporting that advocates for gun control are not as concerned about the assault weapons ban as they are with some other elements of the president's package. jim kessler of americans for gun safety says, quote, if you are going to die at the hands of a criminal with a gun, it's going to be a handgun. and statistically speaking, which is what he means, that might be true. but it's not handguns that people remember from a tragedy like what happened at sandy hook elementary in december. it's assault weapons that now appear so difficult in po
? >> dianne feinstein, the chair of the committee yesterday still saying yesterday they wanted the original documents. then today on our program at 1:00, the house chairman who carries a lot of weight about and has is very supportive, a former fbi guy, a republican, though, said he also thought the original memos should be turned over, that the white paper that had been turned over to them last summer that michael isikoff uncovered and reported first on your show was not good enough. that it needed to finally be the actual legal guidance that was turned over to the oversight committees. and we're talking about the two intelligence committees, rachel, who handle classified information all the time. and there haven't been any leaks out of those committees. so they were facing a confirmation hearing that was potentially contentious. and also, other answers were given to the committee that were revealed today from john brennan. we can talk about that after a moment. they knew that there were other issues they were going to have to deal with. they needed to get this off the table. >> well, in te
democrats were saying, look if we -- dianne feinstein, if we don't get this, it's going to be a problem. you don't want it to be more of a public problem with john brennan than it already is going to be, but the hearing is already i think shaping up to be a debate. among democrats and republicans, but a lot of folks -- should we be telling -- you don't want them to turn into an all-out back and forth over this. if you give us this document, it might not be great for john brennan, but it seems likely we're not going to hold this up. it seems like he winds up getting confirmed. they did it under dur es. if -- in a perfect world i don't think the white house would have chosen to just sort of put this documentation out there. the timing of it suggests they wouldn't. >> well, let's take a look, a quick look, at john brennan back at the woodrow wilson center back in april last april with his explanation for why he believed that drones do conform to principles of humanity and here's his words. >> targeted strikes conform to the principle of humanity, which requires us to use weapons that will not i
, intelligence committee chair diane fine feinstein called fore openness about drone strikes. >> talking about, this is a hot button issue. at the very beginning of that hearing,g, it was interrupted repeatedly by protesters who came in and eventually the entire room had to be cleared and only authorized people were allowed in, because it was interrupted so many times. >> we've seen that kind of thing before. they took it to another level yesterday, the fact that they had to close things off a little bit here. politically speaking, it seems likely he will get confirmation. certainly more likely than chuck hagel. so far so good for mr. brennan. but the drone has become the hot issue, because the obama administration has kind of changed positions in the last couple of years about, you know, tactics. >>> well, the dream of luxury living is over for a squatter in south florida. andre barbossa had taken over this foreclosed mansion, claiming an archaic law called adverse possession. but the bank of america, which owns the multimillion dollar property, had him evicted. the bank even had the locks ch
that senator feinstein, in my conversations with her, and the tragedies she's experienced as mayor of san francisco as well as her attempts to ban assault weapons and had done so in the past, and that her federal assault legislation, while ended, she will reintroduce that in january and we will be big supporters of that. and she will continue dialoguing on a national level, and we will support her efforts and the efforts of all of our federal officials to do more, along with the president of the united states and congress to act. and, in fact, i joined over 750 other mayors across this country, using social media and the technology that's available to us today to signal a demand to our congress that we really need a plan and a plan and an action to follow that, to ban these assault weapons and to make sure that we do everything we can to create a higher level of safety throughout the country. assault weapons and the types of things that we've seen in the hands of people who are doing evil or can do evil really have no place, in the home or in the schools or in our streets. and, so, with t
about our need to support senator feinstein's national effort for the assault weapons ban that she had in the 90's and that expired in 2004. it's going to be a lot more comprehensive and we need to have that. it's going to be an uphill fight, as president obama has reminded us, but we have it keep talking about it. we have to keep it in the forefrupt. we have to keep the pictures of our youth in front of us in everything that we do. this is what i am willing to do and again continue asking everybody for help in the city because the more i do that, the more of the graciousness of our community comes out because this is not something that just law enforcement can do, it's got to be our whole society acting together. thank you.

. >> what do you make of his point and many who are critical of what senator dianne feinstein has proposed, over the fact that we do have hundreds if not thousands of lawses on the books already. >> it's a legitimate point. they are not being forced. i asked markicle bethat, who is a big supporter of gun control. he said, i would like to see them enforced. he is not saying that everything the nra is saying is wrong. remember, this is a retired navy captain. me and gabrielle giffords had and have guns. but he says, that doesn't solve a lot of the problems. i thought this was one of the revelations, i don't think they have much of a chance of getting an assault weapons ban. there is a growing realization, it is not going to happen on capitol hill this year. i think there is much more of a support and push and chance for a element on the size of magazines and especially for an expansion of the background check. and the polls indicate, a lot of nra number members support the idea, with a history of mental illness, and if there is a criminal record, there should be a limit. the person who shot
support senator feinstein's assault weapons ban legislation. federal law prohibits dangerous individuals such as convicted felons and those with mental health this qualifiers for possessing firearms. background checks are required on dealers, no check is required for private sales such as those for online or print ads or gun shows. is a major problem. from november, 2011-november, 2012, an estimated 16.6 million transactions occurred without a background check. this occurs for private individuals rather than licensed gun dealers. it allows 40 percent of those requiring guns to bypass checks, it is like allowing 40% of passengers to board a plan without going through security. would we do this? last october in brookfield, wisconsin, seven women were shot by present -- by a prohibited purchaser was under a restraining order. the shooter answered an online ad was able to buy a gun without a check of very quickly. had the sale been required to have a check, the tragedy could have been prevented. background checks work. they stop nearly 2 million prohibited purchasers between 1994-2009. we al
feinstein's assault weapons ban legislation, but top senate democrat harry reid sounds cautious about feinstein's proposal. >> she's talked to me about her assault weapons ban, a new one, and she believes in it fervently and i admire her for that. i'll take at that look at it. and we will all kinds of issues to deal with and i think everyone would be well-advised to determine how to read it. >> other tough votes on fiscal issues such as taxes and spending. house speaker john boehner, a republican says the process isn't easy. >> frankly, there's a lot of scar tissue that carries over with a lot of these bills, it's tough for congress to figure out where the common ground is. >> so the challenge for harry reid balancing loyalty to president obama and looking out for members who are on the ballot in 2014. >> alisyn: that's a tough dance or a boxing match if i'm going to use the harry reid analogy, thanks, mike. also, developing this hour, new reaction from the white house, growing concern over the president's policies that allowed drone strikes on u.s. citizens comes in the wake after re
automatically and guns t banned under dianne feinstein's law. when the department of homeland security uses them they are used in self-defense. but when i want to use it's considered, i do. >> sean: first of all, it's none of your business. i'm a shooter and that is why i look it. you said a gun is not your best option? >> no. >> sean: so a shooter comes in here. what are you going to do? are you going to grab scissors? >> i'm going to try to exit as quickly as possible. i think the bottom line you are more likely to be shot by law enforcement that arrives on the scene and don't know that you are a bystander and actual shooter. in tucson someone arrived with a gun.... >> sean: do you know how silly this sounds. if you can't get behind a desk and you can't call 911 and if you can't go to where the shooter is, treating like you are in kindergarten. then they are saying use a scissors. then we're going to use scissors. that is ridiculous. >> your keys will be locked in your desk. why do the department of homeland security that it's a great weapon for self-defense but not a great defense for regular
and how did they obtain the guns. if there is a proposition on the table, whether by obama, feinstein or you, that would actually work. i think we've got to stop talking about what makes us feel better and what maybe -- and what actually works, or what sounds kb. when the emotions are this raw for all of us, all want to quote, do something. but we have to do something that works. in the three massacres we are talking about, aurora, tucson and newtown, these guys had their guns legally. the tuesd the tucson shooter passed a back ground check. the guy in aurora would have had the other two weapons to commit his crimes. >> kelleyann. you skillfully avoided my question. >> no, i'm not. >> do you agree with the premise with the sand oo hook child's father, that his son's right to live super seeds the right to own an assault rifle. >> well, i'm also pro life, if you want to have a show about that. but i believe that his son's life is a precious right. we also have the second amendment. if politicians don't like it, they need to amend it. we have 3 million guns in this country -- >> let me b
and joe biden and dianne feinstein and chuck schumer and 24 other democrats in the senate and all but one of the republicans in the senate all voted yes. and yeah, there were democrats who were against the war from the beginning. and that one republican, lincoln chaffee. but there were enough democrats who said yes and went along with it. that's part of the reason the war happened. the difference over time is that republican chuck hagel and most of the democrats who were wrong about iraq, they figured out that they were wrong and they turned against the war and ultimately they tried to end the war because it had been a mistake. we can say mistake in the technical sense here, right? the war was started to go get weapons of mass destruction from saddam and to stop saddam from helping al qaeda. well, saddam had no relationship with al qaeda that we were stopping. and saddam had no weapons of mass destruction. it was wrong. the war was factually wrong. right? we have learned that. this is not a controversial assertion. john mccain led the senate today in trying ton just stop chuck hagel from
's by president obama or senator feinstein or you, that would actually work, i think we've got to stop talking about what makes us feel better and what maybe -- and what actually works or what sounds good because when the emotions are this raw for all of us, we all want to, quote, do something, but we have to do something that works. the fact is in the three massacres we're talking about, aurora, tucson, and newtown, these guys had their guns legally. i mean, i hate saying their names so i say the tucson shooter, he passed an instant background check, and the assault weapons ban had failed in his case, the guy in aurora still would have had the other two weapons he used to commit his crimes. >> kellyanne. you skillfully avoided my question, which is do you agree with the sandy hook father's premise that the right of his child's life supersedes the right to own a high-powered weapon or high capacity magazine. >> we have something called the second amendment. if politicians out there don't like it, they're going to have to amend the constitution. you're not going to get very far because as you s
. >> you would support dianne feinstein's assault ban? >> absolutely. i think she's doing a terrific job. >> one of the things you talk about in the book, but, of course, we all have been witnessing the extreme weather phenomenon. >> yeah. >> you know, i was just wondering, since you've brought this issue up, we haven't really been able to do much in the united states, the european union has done something in terms of the kind of things you want to see, cap and trade or perhaps a carbon tax or things like that. china and india continue to add a power plant, essentially, every week. so, do you look at that and say climate change is going to happen, no matter what at this point? >> well, some climate change is already happening and will continue to happen. the physics of the problem are quite challenging. we put, well, 85% of the internal used by earth inc., it comes from fossil fuels. and the combustion of those fuels results in us putting 90 million tons of heat-trapping pollution into the atmosphere every day, as if it's an open sewer. it does obey the laws of physics. it traps enough e
the remington shotgun, senator feinstein's bill would outlaw that shotgun if it has a seven- round magazine on it. it comes with a five-round magazine. you can extend it. the bill would outlaw that standard home defense shotgun, if it had a seven-round magazine. it is all fine to talk about novelty items on the fringe, like 100-round drums, but at practice, what does the threat of being a law, when people are using standard capacity handgun magazines and standard capacities for rifles and shotguns. >> what are the law-abiding citizens doing with these? what are the lawful purposes to which law-abiding citizens are using these guns? >> self-defense, target shooting, all of which are purposes lawful for having a firearm. and in regards to the extra training the police officers have. i represented the two police training organizations in the supreme court and i would certainly agree that the police have more training for all kinds of reasons, including having the power to effectuate arrests, which ordinary citizens do not. in the view of the training organizations, they believe the training th
committee, it's unlikely to include a gun ban. though reid has said california senator dianne feinstein will have an opportunity to present the provision as an amendment once the bill reaches the senate floor. remember there's a whole bunch of red tape democrats want to actively cascade a vote against the assault weapons ban so they can show they are pro-gun. >> the super bowl ad new york city mayor's group ran in the d.c. market focused on one part of the gun control bills and that's the background check, one pointing out the nra at one time supported closing the gun show loophole. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory, instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show, no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> 14 years later on fox news sunday lapierre said the group's position changed warning it would lead to a universal registry of gun owners and eventually the confiscation of guns. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it's never going to be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. >> okay then. >>> minnesota's also a st
and take all the guns out, that senator feinstein wants to take out -- wait a minute. you're still left with 2,200 guns you can legally buy. >> the problem is you're obsessing over one gun that a bad human being has used a couple of times. >> no, no, wait. >> no, no, let me finish. hold on a second. >> the past five mass shootings in america. >> guess what, the last shooting that i could have been a victim of, it wasn't an ar-15. you're obsessed over the ar-15. have you ever had a gun to your head? >> no. >> have you ever had a man look you in the eyes and say i'm going to your head off? >> no. >> with expletives while grinning? i had a gun to defend myself. i didn't have an ar-15. he didn't have an ar-15. >> why would you need an ar-15 in that situation? >> you're missing the point. >> i'm not missing the point. >> anything is an assault weapon when it's in the bad hands of the bad person. the gun used that night was not on the special list that the senator wants to have out there, the list of guns. you know what? that gun that night was just as dangerous to my life. >> sure. >> when h
over their shoulder. >> i want to read senator diane dpin stei feinstein, her statement this morning says in part as president obama said at time of his death, alaki was the operations leader of aqap. he directed the failed attempt to blow up an airplane on christmas day 2009 and responsible for attempts to blow up cargo planes in 2010. recruiting others to kill americans until the time of his death in yemen. essentially people read in to that this is a statement that the bad guys were planning something. so this is what needs to happen. you hear a lot of people say, how can you defend these people who were plotting against americans. >> right. so let's just assume that everything that that statement says about al alawaki is true? this is going to be true of others killed by drone strikes. they have not been under him. one was khan that grew up here in new york. another was a 16-year-old kid. nobody has ever alleged he did anything wrong. you have to make sure that you have checks and balances in place because some of the people that the government target may not be the worse guys in
in yemen which killed two suspects both u.s. citizens. today senator dianne feinstein demanded more details of that report. critics also spoke out today saying drone strikes kill innocent civilians. secret of the cia reveal the most complete report yet of covert operations when it comes to detaining terror suspects. today's report said 54 countries including afghanistan, syria and pakistan have helped the u.s. since the 9/11 attack. some of the countries provided intelligence or aided in the capture transport or detention of terror suspects. president obama will make his first trip to israel since becoming president. he will visit benjamin netanyahu to discuss a variety of topics including security issues surrounding iran and syria. during his trip president obama will visit the west bank and jordan. a historic visit between two other leaders today. iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad is in cairo meeting with egyptian president morsi. he is the first iranian leader to visit egypt since 1979. for the last three decades iran and egypt have been at bitter odds over all kinds of issues but to
group on the senate intelligence committee, not the chair, dianne feinstein who we'll be talking to tomorrow. but ron widen is asking this question and down at the retreat in annapolis, he told our own mike viqueira, every american has the right to know when their government believes that it is allowed to kill them. >> you know, this is an issue that puts president obama at odds with his base. when he came into the white house, he was very critical of the bush administration for waterboarding, for enhanced -- he called for more transparency. the administration has not been transparent. it's only because of a leak that we know as much as we do about the targeting of american, how it's done, when it's allowed. and that's why we're going to have a discussion about this and that's also why it does not imperil brennan's nomination. because the people who are most distressed about there are part of the core democratic groups that are going to vote with the president i think when it comes to john brennan. but it is an opportunity to have a conversation that we have not had yet. >> and o
with dianne feinstein's weapons ban which they find lukewarm in advancing. >> i'll take a look at that as i've indicated to you. we'll have votes on all kinds of issues dealing with guns. i think would be well advised to read the legislation. >> reid has shielded his members on budgets since 2009 but democrats have promised to pass one this year. the house speaker is prepared for bruising debates ahead. >> the process was designed to be inefficient and difficult. there is a a lot of the scar tissue that carries over with these bills. it's up to the congress with how to deal with them. >> for reid and his democrats, it will be a difficult balance trying to be loyal to the white house and worrying about self-preservation. too many controversial votes could lead to big losses in 2014 and put reid into the minority. >> chris: mike, thanks for. >> this afternoon we leernd that marco rubio will give response to president obama's state of the union address. tune in next tuesday for special coverage. president obama has nominated sally jewel to head the interior department. she is head of a company
in that senator feinstein wants in, there would still be 2,200 guns legally obtained. that is enough. thank you both very much. >>> coming up next, l.a. reid talks x factor, whitney houston and tells us his grammy predictions. i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. >>> i was prepared to just rip you to shreds. doing a beatles song is prepresumptuous as if you are teen heartthrobs like the beatles and you actually are teen heartthrobs like the beatles. >> you may recognize them. he is also chairman and ceo of every record and played a key role in recent successes of artists including kanye we have, jennifer lopez and a little phenomenon called justin bieber. this week, the grammy salute. welcome to you. >> thank you. >> how does it feel to be an icon? >> i'm not sure. it come this weekend. a little bit scary. i feel like i haven't arrived at that point in my career yet. i'm a little bit young for it. >> of all

feinstein then let the hearing resume after about a ten-minute break with a lot of empty chairs in there. she is allowed to ask them to leave when there are disruptions that sort of determined at the discretion of the chair, wolf. >> there's been a bunch of questions on what's called enhanced interrogation. some call it torcher on very, very sensitive issues. what did he have to say? >> reporter: the nominee in the past has said that he opposed enhanced interrogation but he was asked about a statement he made in 2007 to cbs news in which he said in part, quote, there has been a lot of information that has come out from these interrogation procedures that the agency, be meaning the cia, has in fact used against the real hardcore terrorists and it has saved lives. well, he was asked to defend that statement. why does he think back in 2007 enhanced interrogation saved lives but now he doesn't. this administration opposes enhanced interrogation, wolf. john brennan said, it was the work of this very committee that he's testifying in front of that issued his mind. they issued a 6,000 page repo
was accurate. >> i'm referring not to the report but the statement that chairman feinstein and i issued april 27, 2012. we flat out say that those statements are wrong. do you have any basis to disagree? >> i do not. >> will you when you become c.i.a. director take the statement that we have issued and tell us whether or not you disagree with any of the statements we have made about those statements of those three men? will you do that if confirmed? >> i will look at consider that request. the report the committee put together, i need to look at the c.i.a. response and that report raises serious questions about whether worthwhile intelligence came from these individuals. >> will you include a review of our joint statement and tell us whether you disagree with anything we said. >> i will be happy to. >> one final point, and that has to do with a very famous document. my time is not yet up. that has to do with a cable that came in. >> the issue is whether or not there was a meeting in prague between one of the people who attacked the trade center and the iraqi intelligence. the cable that came

senator feinstein and obama. i say perverse, because he then goes out and commits a set of atrocities with a gun. he sounds completely unhinged, yet the catalyst for all this appeared to be his firing from the lapd. do you have any recollection of what happened with him? do you remember him? >> first off, we don't know hot the catalyst was. the firing was back in 2008, i believe. it's now over five years ago. so what has transpired during those five years, the court several years later upheld the firing. so as to what triggered the actions, the producing of the manifesto, the separate sending of a package to cnn last friday, we don't know. and we won't know until they either apprehend him or other information comes forward. so was it the firing? was it something else that transpired? he appears to have a lot of anger directed to a lot of different people. some who have no relationship at all, as best we can tell, with anything having to do with the discharge. >> the package he sent to anderson cooper, which anderson didn't see until today, wasn't made aware of it, it contained a numbe
intelligence committee led by dianne feinstein that drone strikes are never used as retro abuse for an earlier attack against americans. he says americans deserve to learn more about the procedures and practices for drones and targeted killings. republican senators want to know if brennan would rather kill terrorists with a drone or capture them. >> i never believe it's better to kill a terrorist than detain him. we want to detain as many terrorists as possible. >> reporter: another big topic of the day information sharing. senators complain they don't share enough classified information with them while sharing too much with the media. some republicans accused brennan and the cia of offering authorized leaks to help president obama in the when i see you next in a warning coming from out going defense secretary leon panetta about upcoming defense cuts. reporting live in washington jacqueline fell ktvu channel 2 news. >>> texas governor rick perry is coming to california to try to lure businesses away to texas. his visit kicks off on sunday and will include stops in silicon valley, san francisc

is more precise and careful than most people imagine. i notice that chairman feinstein in the course of her rashgsz side-stepping classified information made that point that from what the committee sees, the targeting is very precise. >> do you think that the president should have the sole phenyl authority over this. we're told by public reports that there is actually a kill list and that the president goes through names and the intelligence himself. >> should there be some other check and ballot ability of a president, any president, to make life and death decisions over americans who are connected to terrorist groups or are suspected of being connected to terrorist groups. >> i think that's a tough question. i think it does bare examination. he clearly is responsible and accountab accountable. since lyndon johnson did get involved. since then presidents typically have not gotten into the targeting loop that is choosing specific targets. >> that is a departure from past practice, and i think the idea of looking at a court or some other thing inserted into the decision process has so
